As for the test itself...

Clip to ScrapBook #6

I will staple this scoring sheet to the test. I still circle every misspelled word on their test, but they get points for having the parts of the words that I was looking for. They don't lose points for misspelling the word. I count the number of points possible (in this example, the initial and final consonants, short vowels, digraphs, blends, and long vowels all for words 1-10, and the high-frequency words). Once the student's test is scored, I count the check marks and divide by points possible. The greyed out sections don't count and the "feature points" and "words spelled correctly" have no impact on the grade. The two words under "totals" are bonus words.

My system isn't perfect by any means, but I'd be happy to answer any questions you have... or take suggestions to improve what I'm doing.
